Picture 1: “This man approached me as I was taking pictures in my neighbourhood of Venice Beach, California. His name is Amir, and he asked me whether I would mind photographing him on the basketball court. With the amount of talent he exhibited, there was certainly nothing I could do but fulfil his request.” - Gregory Michael

Picture 2: “This photo was taken in London, near Charing Cross train station. This is where I‘ve been working on my current portrait project. This man and his rather flamboyant wardrobe caught my eye instantly. I approached him and asked whether he would allow me to take his picture. And then I noticed how interesting his hands were.” - Taras Perevarukha

Picture 3: “This image is especially important to me, because its main subject is my own son. After our breakfast at the hotel, he went to play in the swimming pool with a lifesaver ring. I noticed the colour and shape of the ring, backed by the sun umbrellas, the lines of the ocean, beach and horizon, all coming together in a beautiful and unique composition.” - Andy Chen-Aung Win Htut

Picture 4: “I was taking part in a workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal, when I took this photograph of a boy holding a ball close to a school. A shy little girl stood beside him. The glowing orange colour of the ball symbolises life and vitali-ty to me, as well as the light and free nature of childhood games.” - Callie Eh

Picture 5: “The world‘s askew! A man floats horizontally, while the forest in the background climbs vertically! The title is my cheer for the athlete, as he does airborne push-ups with apparent ease; and for the vertical forest planted in Milan‘s famous Bosco Verticale skyscrapers in the stylish district of Porta Nuova.” - Paolo Visini

Picture 6: “I was at the central market in Nadi on Fiji. The incident light, the words on the wall and the man sitting there so relaxed, made this one of my favourite moments. After consenting to having his picture taken, he resumed his position without a shred of pretence.” - Adam Warmington

Picture 7: “I was out and about on a March afternoon in Beijing. My eye was drawn into this alleyway, due to the bright and colourful wall that has just been painted. Luckily for me, these two pedestrian were just passing across my field of vision, and I was able to capture this interesting photograph.” - Hao Hao

Picture 8: “A Parisian girl‘s socks, depicting the main character in Saint-Exupéry‘s The Little Prince, make up the main motif in this picture. The reference reminded me of Henri Cartier-Bresson‘s quote: ‘To photograph: it is to put on the same line of sight the head, the eye and the heart.‘” - Michael Erimo
